9780062009296: Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock

Sammy Hagar—legendary lead singer of Van Halen, founder of the Cabo Wabo Tequila brand, and one of rock music’s most notoriously successful performers—tells his unforgettable story in this one-of-a-kind autobiography of a life at the top of the charts. From his decade-long journey alongside Eddie Van Halen to his raucous solo career with Chickenfoot and everything in between—the drugs, groupies, and excesses of fame, the outrageous stadium tours, and the thrill of musical innovation—Hagar reveals all in this treasure trove of rock-and-roll war stories. Red is a life-changing look at one of music’s biggest talents—an essential read for music fans and anyone dreaming of becoming rock’s next number one star.

Review:

“Sammy’s no bullsh*tter. If Sammy says it happened, it did. There’s nobody else anywhere like him.” (Michael Anthony)

“Sammy has maintained his all-star success no matter where his Red Rocker career has taken him. He still can’t drive fifty-five, but hey, he’s the one driving the Mustang. So site back and ride.” (Toby Keith)

“Nobody had to explain the American dream to Sammy. He knew in his gut that there was a better life available to him if he refused to accept the status quo. It’s all here in Sammy’s new book.” (Ted Nugent)

“I’ll admit it: I’ve been a Sammy Hagar wannabe since I heard his voice on a Montrose album...I’m proud to call him a rock star hero, a friend, and a brother in the sun. Rock on, Red Rocker!” (Kenny Chesney)

“Sam’s the man. Tequila, fast cars, rock ‘n’ roll—my kind of guy.” (Jimmie Johnson, five-time NASCAR champion)

“There are not a lot of people I would drop whatever I’m doing to go and see, but Sammy Hagar is one of thouse people...The man rocks his ass off, and vicariously through him so do I. My man—Sammy Hagar.” (Whoopi Goldberg)

“Over the many years I’ve known Sammy, his Red Rocker passion in music has always inspired me. But it’s also his love of cooking great food and sharing a good bottle of wine that has been at the core of our friendship for so long. (Emeril Lagasse)

“There are tell-all books. And then there are tell-all books written by Sammy Hagar. The 63-year-old ex-Van Halen frontman holds back nothing -- and I mean absolutely nothing -- in his autobiography...the Red Rocker’s life look-back doesn’t skimp on the details.” (Associated Press)

From the Back Cover:

For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has beena fixture in rock music. From breaking intothe industry with the band Montrose to hismultiplatinum solo career to his ride as thefront man of Van Halen, Sammy's powerful andunforgettable voice has set the tone for some ofthe greatest rock anthems ever written—songslike "I Can't Drive 55," "Right Now," and "WhyCan't This Be Love."

In Red, Sammy tells the outrageous story ofhis tear through rock 'n' roll. From the decadenceof being one of the world's biggest rock stars tothe unfiltered story of being forced out of VanHalen, Sammy's account spares no one, leastof all himself. His is a tale of a true rock 'n'roller—someone who's spent decades bringingthe party with him wherever he goes but alwaysheadin' back to Cabo for más tequila.

For over 30 years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture in heavy metal music. Beginning with his successful solo career where he churned out hits such as I Can t Drive 55 and stretching into his decade long stint as the frontman for Van Halen, Hagar has sold millions of albums all over the world. Taking over for Van Halen s original singer David Lee Roth in 1985, Hagar kept that monumentally successful band going stronger than ever during their biggest years before being unceremoniously fired in 1996. A decade later, he returned triumphant, leading the band on a reunion tour that was as much a box office smash as a personal catastrophe. Now he tells the outrageous and unbelievable stories of his rise through rock music, detailing how his voice became instantly recognizable all over the world. Lavishing readers with behind the scenes stories from Van Halen, one of the biggest-selling rock groups in history, Hagar tells of the worldwide stadium tours, the private jets, and the parties, and of course the trappings that came with fame and success. From the decadence of one of the world s biggest rock acts at its peak to the struggles of egos to the making of some of rock s biggest anthems, Hagar s account spares no one, least of all himself. In this book, his fans will meet a remarkably human man behind the bleached hair and scraggly beard, up close and personal, a man who has stayed true to his working class values throughout his rocket ship ride to the top of the world of rock music.
